Dog Walkers of Florence

Illustration, Sketchbook, On-Site, Book

I studied for a semester in Florence, Italy, most of my time spent eating a lot of gelato and pasta, but also worked a lot in my sketchbook. I was particularly interested in the dogs and their owners of Florence, and their own little subculture within the city. For this book, I  did some "research", spending a lot of time at parks and gardens, and even got to meet and socialize with these Florentines and their furry companions! Here are some on-site sketches and other drawings from that experience, which eventually culminated in a small, saddle-stitch bound book.
